It's sad that he died . How old was he? It's also sad that he probably took all of memories with him.

Pete would of been in his mid 60's when he died. I'm surprised no one has chimed in with any other info. His funeral must of been kept well away from the media. I'm surprised nothing is on the internet mentioning this.

Sad to hear this... and even more sad we learn about this only now a few years after.
How did you hear he passed away?

Very true...
btw there must be still an interview out there with Pete shelved away in Peter M's archives.

That was the only interview Pete had ever done for the docu. I've seen the transcript for that interview and it isn't the best. He mainly talks about what we already know and he talks more about being drunk and partying with the band. Very little technical info is mentioned and i sort of highlighted the better bits in a previous thread. I heard about Pete's death from a crew member, i was more surprised that the inner circle hadn't leaked out this info when it happened. This is probably one of the last know photos of Pete when he did that interview. RIP Pete.

It's regret, i think that really is the worst kind of pain, yeah guilt is bad, and sadness is bad, but regret is the sickly combination of both.
